Susan Cain: The Power of Introverts

Can you imagine...

Can you imagine working for a company that only has a little more that 635 employees, but, has the following employee statistics….

29 have been accused of spouse abuse
7 have been arrested for fraud
9 have been accused of writing bad cheques
17 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses
3 have done time for assault
71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit
14 have been arrested on drug related charges
8 have been arrested for shoplifting
21 are currently defendants in lawsuits
84 have been arrested for drink driving in the last year.
And collectively, this year alone, they have cost the British tax payer £92,993,748 in expenses!!!

Which Organisation is this??
It’s the 635 Members of The House Of Commons - the same group that cranks out hundreds of new laws each year designed to keep the rest of us in line.

(And just to top all that they probably have the best ‘corporate’ pension scheme in the country - whilst trying to ensure that everyone else has the worst possible!)

For "jedphelym" / "seanrickard", who described a recent post of mine as "pathetic".

This is pathetic” - the amazing elucidation of the beginning and end of jedphelym’s argument. 

After months and months of loyally following my tumblr, once tentatively asking, “Are you a Muslim?” (as if it were not *completely obvious*), you have once again graced my tumblr with an enlightening contribution:

This is pathetic”, you wrote. Wow, how did you even come up with that? Then again, it’s the same way you describe yourself time and time again on your own blog (for example, in the fact that you are not over your ex). The word “pathetic” clearly means much more to you than it does to me.

You regularly bash religion on your blog, and say that you are “qualified to debate this”, but I didn’t realise the eloquence with which you could convey your reasoning, the etiquette with which you could challenge and be open to challenge. You’ve demonstrated your wisdom, today.

What an asset to the tumblr world <3 

Keep posting, jedphelym.
